Graham Spanier Wins Delay of Sandusky Lawsuit

The bad news? It's because he also faces criminal charges.

NewsWorks reports: “A Pennsylvania judge is granting former Penn State president Graham Spanier’s request to put on hold his defamation civil lawsuit against former FBI director Louis Freeh and Freeh’s law firm. Judge Jonathan Grine on Tuesday issued a stay in the case, citing as a factor the criminal charges that Spanier faces for an alleged cover-up of complaints about retired assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.” Spanier’s testimony in the civil case might jeopardize his right not to testify in the criminal proceedings again him.
